Registration Policy

All employers that attend this event agree to abide by the NACE Principles for Employment Professionals. Click Here to review the NACE Principles for Employment Professionals.

IMPORTANT: If your organization fits into a category below, Click Here before registering to review our Registration Policy.

  • Commission-based organizations
  • Organizations requiring the student to set up his/her own business
  • Organizations requiring an initial investment by the student
  • Third-Party Recruiters

The Armed Forces will now recruit from the vendor tables on the main level of the University Center. This change has been implemented due to the increased demand for booths and overall space. The Armed Forces can participate in the ballroom and/or bridge if space is available. In the event that vendor tables must be used, the registration fee will be waived.

Booth Placement

Booth placement is determined by the discretion of the Career Fair Coordinator, and is based on several factors:

  • Sponsors receive guaranteed prominent placement
  • Further placement near sponsor booths is based on a first come first serve basis
  • Organizations which register later, or those which have moved from the waiting list to securing a booth, have less priority than those which registered earlier
